AUSTRIAN ART NOUVEAU TURN TEPLITZ BOHEMIA AMPHORA RStK VASE CIRCA1900 RARE
ANTIQUE Austrian Art Nouveau Turn Teplitz Bohemia Amphora RStK Vase, circa 1900! This unique vase designed by Riessner, Stellmacher & Kessel and hand painted/hand glazed. It was made in Bohemia when it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, or the Dual Monarchy, which was formed in 1867 and ended in 1918. This beautiful amphora vase measures 8 1/2" in height and 5 1/2" in width. Notice the lovely muted variegated shades of green and gold. During the 1870's, Stellmacher developed a new ceramic material which became known as ivory porcelain due to its soft yellowish shade and matte finish. The new material allowed the ceramist to create more complex modeling and detailing of shapes and applied designs. You can see evidence of this in the unique handles of this amphora. In 1892, the Riessner, Stellmacher & Kessel (RStK) porcelain factory started production in Turn. Their goal was to create luxury porcelain art objects.
A collection from the company received the highest award at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago and in the same year received the Gold Medal at the San Francisco Exhibition. There is a very slight hairline crack in one of the handles (see photo #10) but overall it is in very good antique condition. OWN this piece of art history today!
